If you rode the subway on September 23 this year, you were part of history.

The Metropolitan transportation Authority says over 6.1 million people used the subway system on September 23, setting a new record for the most riders in a single day.

That's the highest since the authority began recording ridership figures in 1985.

Ridership also exceeded six million on four other days last month.

Twenty years ago, the single day record was just under four million riders.
